MOSCOW.—No foreign envoy to U:e Kremlin, and this includes the incredible visit of Kins Klian of Afghanistan some years as°. 'las provoked gaudier gossip, livelier lowdown in Moscow than 0113 Ambassador William o. nullltt, American, wealthy, handsome, and a bachelor. Nor has any ever had a warmer reception to the Red capital. Although none would deny that tlic ambassador's jxjriion^l charm would take him a long way, no matter vfrerc he went, this does not, account for his cherishment by the Soviets. His reception in Moscow has been dlflcrcnl from thai, evel accorded any other envoy. Bolsheviks do not forget Ihcli friends, and it was this very Bullitt who, after serving on a special mis- slon to Russia in IBIS, reported to a hostile and incredulous world that, "the Bolsheviks arc going In remain in power," and recommended to the late President Wilson that lie recognize them as a sovereign power. Favorilc \Vd!i Masses Today, to the average Soviet citizen, although the, other foreign ambassadors to Moscow are remote fel-. lows flying about breakneck speed In expcii£lv.c cars flying bright and interesting little Hags, Bill Bullitt i.s an old and familiar friend. • Kvcry ncwspapci'-l-eadinj; Soviet dliiffiii |;nows Ills gtnlljui; [ace, photographed oftin and sympdlhcti- c'lilly— at (lie horse races, playing first base at (lie Fourth of July baseball game, making his llrst speech in Russian, teaching t))e Red Army roiigli riders •' lio«- lo play polo, taking his lirsl Moscow '-airplane i-lde, at Ihc 10th anniversary or Intourist. Wlio Imn't heard that Bullitt calls Voroshilov, tlie dapper little Red Ai-iny chief, "Kllm," and that Kllm calls BulliU, "Bill''; who tiofMi'l know thai «lic|i lite American ambassador leaves the Red Square reviewing stand nflcr demonstrations,' that lie invariably waves in farewell to tlic commissars' platform on Lenin's tomb', and that ionic commissar or other iin.uubly returns (he creeling.

Some of tlie stories swapped about the American ambassador are clearly laiicy's night, 'but olh-rs especially Voroshilov's inLitn.tij ,ir? known to be true, for Bullltt is of. (en accompanied on his infoimal calls by some young secretary who is BO thrilled by.the "big shots he mccLs, that he talks about it This is evidenced, loo, by Dul, lill's trajnmi; O f the Red "Army irolo team. The ambassador, when h= saw what fine riders the Soviet cavalrymen were, and learned thot ncitiier Voroshilov nor r\)rcigq Minister Lllvinov had ever witnessed a polo game except in thr inovks volunteered lo Irain a polo team and did. And personally umpired the first game on Soviet soil In the nibitrbs of Moscow.' "Homaikc" Kunior a b'cnsaliun! And how the other foreign envoys disapprove (or perhaps envy) all this familiarity and hail, well- met (msbicss between the American ambassador and important Soviet ollicials may best be gauged by tlicir tally comment when the rumor was Jamie-lied that Bullitt had fallen dcsiwratcly in love with Olga Vas- .'•ilcvna Lcpcshfiiskaya, popular and youngest premiere ballet dancer at Moscow^ J?olsl 10 i Theater, and was going to marry licr.
